She is such an amazing boss and person, and we want to do all we can to make her feel celebrated on her special day.

Happy Birthday, Cousin!

I hope you have a beautiful, blessed day!


above all else: Love said...

Nancy, you are the inspiration that reminds me to not compromise ever in my ministry and if I stay a single woman in ministry that God is enough. I'll never forgot the first time I heard about you and Mercy,then being able to work under your Nashville staff was the highlight of my Social Work career-- you deserve an incredible birthday.

Hi Nancy,

Happy birthday!

I am one of the countless women you've blessed by your ministry. Your message "How to bring increase to your life" was the first of your teachings that I bought while volunteering with a friend for the first Run for Mercy in Canada and I've been applying the principles to my life ever since. I love your no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point style. Your voice makes me sit up straight and listen! :)

I have been a supporter of Mercy Ministries ever since hearing your teachings and it's been a tremendous blessing to me to be able to give to the Surrey home.

Thank you for being such a fearless woman of God. I look forward to finally meeting you when you come to speak in BC!

You have an amazing heart for the Lord! I love being part of what He is doing at MM. I'm also very happy that you come around JRA fairly often because we love having you with us as much as possible!

I pray the Lord blesses you on your birthday in a way of surprise and delight like never before!

with love and Birthday hugs,

I just wanted to say Happy Birthday Nancy. You are truly an exceptional women. You have done so much for so many young women. Thank you for starting Mercy in the first place. I went to the one in Canada and it really made a difference. With out you there would be no Mercy, so thank you so much and take care. :D Patricia

You inspire me Nancy and I pray that I too can live as God's disciple just as you have (and do). You deserve to have the biggest, best, most awesome birthday anyone could ever experience.

Happy Birthday Nancy!!
Wanted to be a part of celebrating your special day. I heard you speak on a cd recording on Joyce Meyer's 2011 Women's Confrence. You are such an inspiration. Your story of God teaching you about not judging others, looking past appearances, behaviors and differences struck a cord with me. As did your testimony of feeling so sure what God called you to do then wondering if He really did call you to do it! I have heard your voice in my heard many times as I face similar obstacles of my own. What a blessing you are to so many people. I too am a survivor of abuse and really have a heart for young girls realizing their full potential! Have a wonderfully blessed birthday!
